Bicentennial Gross-Outs may not be the first comic that comes to mind when listing some of the all-time underground greats, but it really should be, primarily on the strength of two feature stories. One is William Stout's masterful parody of Disneyland, "Realityland," which includes a visit to "Sexual Fantasyland." The other is "Beddy Bi-Centennial Story" from Icelandic Codpiece Comics Studios (a collective of the following comic creators: Brian McBean, Christofer, Gervasio Loma, Jim Ferguson, Bob Taylor and Errol McCarthy).

Bicentennial Gross-Outs
is certainly one of my favorite books, and another example of why I extend the underground comic book historical era to 1980 instead of ending it in 1974 or 5 or 6. Although it doesn't have any contributions from the founding fathers of the movement, it is distinctly underground in appearance, attitude and politics. I'd have a hard time putting this book (or Anarchy Comics or Dyke Shorts or Class War Comix or Whole Wheat Comics or Edge City) in the Alternative Comics section when they were a continuation of the underground comics movement and were clearly distinct from early alternative comics like Andromeda, Love and Rockets and Raw.

It is currently unknown how many copies of this comic book were printed. It has not been reprinted.
